There has been a Huntsman in the Daystate range since the start of the company over 40 years ago, and while it’s style of a sleek sporter is common across the years, each of the seven distinct versions brings with it another progression in this time-honoured line up.
The Huntsman Revere is the first Huntsman to have a sidelever action. Sidelever actions are especially popular with shooters of higher-powered air rifles because the system greatly reduces cocking effort. Further developments of the Huntsman’s hammer and valve system, along with the inclusion of a HUMA-Air Regulator, move the rifle into modern target rifle levels of performance. The Revere offers up to 40 ft/lbs of muzzle energy (in .25 caliber), with high-power performance up to 18 and 30 ft/lbs also available from .177 and .22 models respectively.
DAYSTATE’S NEW HUNTSMAN REVERE RETAINS THE MODELS ICONIC LINES…BUT INCLUDES MANY NEW UPGRADES
Additionally, the Revere sports a new-look breech and an action optimized to work with an all-new gate-loading self-indexing magazine system, which itself sports an even greater payload in .177 and .22 calibers. And included in the Revere package is Daystate’s latest single-shot loading tray for those not after the speedy re-loads offered by a magazine.
Of course, standing alongside the Revere model’s upgrades are all the features that have made the Huntsman the benchmark of PCP sporter design. Features like a shrouded match-grade barrel– two-stage adjustable trigger and its magnificent sporter stock that cradles a lower-seated action to maximize handling.
Also available in ‘true’ left-hand configuration (with left-hand cocking lever and magazine access), the new Huntsman Revere takes the world’s most iconic athlete to a whole new level.
